The Grayson County Bluegrass Opry would like to encourage all of our fans to support the 2017 Hosparus Bluegrass Festival on Friday, March 31 and Saturday, April 1 at the Rough River Dam State Park Lodge in Falls of Rough.

Admission is free. There will be lots of bluegrass music performed by many popular area bands. In addition, there will be a live auction on both nights, as well as drawings, raffles, and door prizes. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Hosparus organization.

The event will begin at 6:00 on Friday night and end around 9:00 with music performed by the Rosine Diners Club band, Higher Ground, Grandview Junction, and Blue River.

Saturday’s activities will begin at 12 noon and end around 9:00, and the performing bands will include the W.R. Huff band, Honeysuckle Ridge, Fowler Boys String Band, Becky and the Butler County Boys, Justamere Bluegrass Band, McDonald Road, Into the Blue, Sassybrown, and Kings Highway. There will also be a “Band Scramble” event on Saturday afternoon.

The 2017 Hosparus Bluegrass Festival is organized and promoted by the Breckinridge Bluegrass Music Association.
